What do you think of Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video?
"Show us your inner Maccabee this Chanukah. Do a world of good, make a world of difference."
This video does nothing more than perpetuate the Western galuth (diaspora), Leftist brainwashing myth of Hanukkah.
Whereas, the true story of Hanukkah includes the following components:
The Maccabees killed Jews.
The Maccabees killed Jews who assimilated into foreign invaders, Hellenist culture, even though they resided in Israel. (...which begs the question, "What are we to do about the Hellenization taking place in Israel now?)
The Maccabees killed Jews who practiced avodah zarah (forbidden worship).
The Maccabees cleansed the Beth HaMiqdash (Holy Temple), and re-instituted the bringing of kosher sacrifices, something which is now considered to be politically-incorrect.
The Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video is just another attempt at revisionist history, keeping the blinds pulled over Jews' eyes, and preventing them from seeing the entire Torah.
The Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video, does present acts of kindness, which the Maccabees no doubt carried out. But, to place the focus on this during Hanukkah, is to be misleading and intellectually dishonest.
The Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video seems more like an American Christmas video, than anything else.
The Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video demonstrates that the Jewish Federation knows nothing about Hanukkah, or worse, that is does know what Hanukkah is, but doesn't want Jews to learn what it really is.
Let's face it. The Jewish Federation's Hanukkah video is crap!
